3 PARA recently deployed 20 personnel on Ex EMERALD LEAP, an Accelerated Freefall (AFF) course in Lake Elsinore, California, US.

The expedition was organised by Captain BL Balch and consisted of all ranks from within 3 PARA, with instructors being provided by the Joint Services Parachuting Centre (Netheravon) and the Red Devils Freefall Display Team.
